Every Machine

I’m really feeling my triceps from the first day of the chest program.

30:00 AMRAP

  • 5 HSPU
  • 400 BikeErg
  • 20 Plyo Lunges
  • 200m Row
  • 10 Pull-ups
  • 120m TrueForm Run
  • 40 Mountain Climbers
  • 200m SkiErg

This was a lot harder than expected. I did everything unbroken, wore grips for pull-ups and was able to finish four full rounds plus through the mountain climbers. I couldn’t get myself to push the runs otherwise I might have been able to finish five rounds.

Did the bike since I can’t run on my right calf.

Good intensity and push.

Sunday at 3

Much later for us on a Sunday, around 3pm, but we had a busy morning.

Warm-up

Tabata

  • Burpees

Definitely not my idea! I went 2×6 and 6×5.

Conditioning

4 Rounds

  • 12/8 cal Row
  • 12 Incline DB Back Fly (20#)
  • 12/8 cal SkiErg
  • 12 Double Handle Pull to Chest (60#)
  • 15/10 cal BikeErg
  • 50m Farmer Carry (60#)

Sort of a partner workout, with the 2nd person waiting until you were off the machine. Then if you got your movement reps done you had a brief wait until your partner finished their machine. I went first and B finished at 22:35.

Midline

3 Rounds

  • 26 Swimmer Crunches
  • 26 Crunches
  • 26 Leg Lifts
  • 26 Single Leg Lifts

Ouch! Took me 8:21.

Calf Strikes Again

Warm-up

  • 3 Sets
    • 40′ Tip toe Walk
    • 10 Calf Raises

Back

4 Sets

  • 12/8 cal Row
  • 12 DB Seal Rows (30#)

4 Sets

  • 12/8 cal SkiErg
  • 12 Lat Pulldowns (93#)

Conditioning

10 Rounds (each)

  • 30 Double Unders
  • 5 Burpees

Partner with B, each doing a round at a time. My right calf blew out after about 15 dubs in round 8 and I went to the ground. So I did 10 burpees to finish out the last two rounds. B was cruising and doing about 42 singles on the jump rope. We finished in 11:41.

Midline

3 Rounds

  • 20 Leg Lifts
  • 20 OH DB Crunches (60#)
  • 14 Plank DB Pull Throughs (60#)

Good one from IBEX. Took me 7:16.

Cardio Pumped Back

Last night we finished up with the rocks around the outdoor gym area. This morning spent several hours organizing the non-gym side of the garage.

Conditioning

We went for the run around the soccer fields and back home, which is 2.72 miles. We did it in 28:30 today which is about 90 seconds better. Brandi was feeling good, but I was dying because I hadn’t eaten enough. Slammed a coke and had some rice cakes when we got home.

Back

4 Sets

  • 12/8 cal Row
  • 12 DB Seal Rows (30#)

Not much rest here because you went again as soon as the other person got off the rower. Really felt the burn with the dumbbells.

4 Sets

  • 12/8 cal SkiErg
  • 12 Lat Pulldowns (104-104-93-93#)

Same thing here with slightly more rest because the calories take longer. This one really stung though and I had to drop weight even though I’d already gone lower than I usually would.

These supersets were an idea I came up with and they worked much better than I ever expected. Will have to keep them in the rotation for a bit.

No Bueno Taco Bell

Warm-up

  • 80′ Lateral Monster Walks
  • 80′ Monster Walks
  • 10 Monster Squats
  • 10 Toe Touches
  • 10 Front Squats (45#)

Legs

4 Sets

  • 12-10-8-6 Front Squats (105-115-125-135#)
  • 20 Pulsing Goblet Squats (45#)

Went up 10# of each set of front squats. Felt much easier than last week. I did wear the belt again.

4 Sets

  • 10 Barbell Glute Bridge (95#) + 2 Banded Hip Abduction
  • 15 Banded Frog Reverse Hypers

Went 20# heavier than last week and it was no problem.

Conditioning

30:00 AMRAP

  • 10 Pull-ups
  • 15 cal Row
  • 10 DB Push Press (50#)
  • 15 cal BikeErg
  • 10 Renegade Rows (50#)
  • 15 cal SkiErg

I should not have gotten that Taco Bell for lunch! I was able to go unbroken for the movements, but I felt gassed on the machines. Only needed five more calories to finish the 6th round. This workout got me.

Muscle-ups at Home!

Ran some errands this morning and workout around 10.

Warm-ups

  • 80′ Lateral Monster Walks
  • 80′ Monster Walks
  • 10 Air Squats
  • Lunge Stretch
  • 10 Bench Press (45#)
  • 10 Tricep Pushdowns (38#)

Conditioning

6 Rounds (IGYG)

  • 12/8 cal Standing BikeErg
  • 10 Plyo Lunges
  • 10 Squat Jumps
  • 10 Reverse Lunges

We’re going to try getting back to doing a leg burner once a week and this definitely did the trick! B went first and it took us 16:55 to finish. I walk 3:00 on the TrueForm for 0.32 km to help flush out my legs some.

20:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 10 Bench Press (95#)
  • 12/8 cal SkiErg
  • 15 Tricep Pushdowns (49#, spin bar)
  • 50 Mountain Climbers

Going from the SkiErg to the push downs was a real burn, especially for 15 reps.

Got some breakfast and then worked on the outdoor gym, getting the bar mounted, so I had to get in a muscle-up!

Then we set the third and final post.
